London quartet Stereo Honey have confirmed they will be releasing a new EP next year as they share their second single to feature on it ‘My Darkness’.

To throw another curveball, they also confirm they are planning to release a debut album at the end of 2020 – so there’s a lot to look forward to!

The first part of this mammoth project by Stereo Honey is their ‘Ladders To The Sun’ EP. The EP, produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Twin Atlantic) finds Stereo Honey at their best yet, thematically tackling apathy in society, mental health, self-destruction and ultimately, the most challenging aspect of the human condition, death.

Stereo Honey’s songs are a poignant exploration of toxic masculinity, and intense, introspective lyrics which are counterbalanced by anthemic rock energy, in powerful contrast. The experimental number ‘My Darkness’ hones in on self-destructive tendencies in the context of relationships.

“It’s about getting lost with someone in love. Asking someone to be there when you’re at your worst. “can I have you in my darkness” is asking a person if they’ll be there in the pits of those times.” – Frontman Pete Restrick

The ‘Ladders To The Sun’ EP will also include previous single ‘You Are A Monster’, as well as four other new tracks, due to be revealed over the coming months. 

The tracklist for the ‘Ladders To The Sun’ EP is:
  • Change / Fade
  • Ladders To The Sun
  • You Are A Monster
  • My Darkness
  • Second Chance
  • Stereo Honey play in December:

    11th – Deaf Institute, Manchester (Flor support)
